'The era of the stagecoach robbers spanned little more than fifty years, from the discovery of gold in 1848 to the replacement of the stages by the railroads just after the turn of the century, but it was an exciting half-century filled with violence and progress. It encompassed the rush to the goldfields, the development of the stage lines, the first stirrings of crime in the West - and then robbery and murder on a grand scale.'
